    Is it supposed to do that or is it just a bug? Like when you click to seek further than 30 seconds, it pauses the video so you have to constantly press play to see what part of the video you are on. It's a bit annoying, and there's no preferences for it?

    I have also noticed this and find it very annoying. it's odd because sometimes it pauses at the new frame but sometimes it pauses where it was before manually seeking through which means you must press play to see where you are. is there any way to stop this and have it act like the previous version did, it was much better that way?

    Sort of bumping this thread but found a non-solution to this issue.


    Clicking and holding a little bit longer seems to keep the video playing or you can click and drag.

    Simply clicking in the progress bar to where you want to go will pause the video randomly at times.

    This is a serious bug that I'm surprised more people aren't talking about.
